Tanner Morgan likely criticized the architecture of his crib and the pattern on his onesie. Some people seem to be born to do what they do – Tanner this one of these people. With a keen eye for architecture, and a deep knowledge of construction and materiality, Tanner brings his erudite perspective to every project. This, combined with his dogged pursuit of perfection, tenacious project management, and passion for good work, make him indispensable to any client who has the good fortune to work with him.

I love Giardini because the collection has an extremely tactile quality being a textile-based wallcovering line. I am passionate about treating each plane of a space with design details and luxe materiality. Because of this, you will very rarely see painted walls in our interiors. Of course there is a time and place for everything, but paint simply lacks the nuance of wall coverings and other materials we use to treat various surfaces within our interiors. In the project shown below, we were contending with rather low ceilings, but we saw an opportunity to address the issue in a really beautiful way. While we do not typically subscribe to the belief that white is best in smaller spaces, we fully embraced drama and color within this space in the millwork, furnishings, etc., so we knew we wanted to keep the wall treatment on the lighter and more restrained side of things. Ukiyo provided the perfect balance of subtle drama we were seeking for this specification. I love the sheen that really shows up beautifully when light hits both the walls and the ceiling. It instantly creates mood and ambiance which is really important in a lounge environment. Leaning into our passion for beautiful textures, textiles, and materials is very easy when specifying Giardini. I also love the subtle grey undertone that shows up beautifully in this particular color way. Typically my immediate draw isn’t to a cool blue/grey palate, but in this particular scenario it was the perfect backdrop to our dramatic, loungy and very maximalist lower level.
